We all have those nights when we wish we could click our heels and make dinner magically appear on the table.

The longest part is browning the meat and I tend to do that on Sundays as I meal prep for the week.
I brown a ton of hamburger and keep it in the fridge ready for upcoming recipes. It saves me from having to stress over getting the hamburger browned and also saves having to wash the same large skillet multiple times in the week. I am all in for anything that helps decrease the number of dishes I have to wash.

I hope this helps make your week a little less stressful! Hopefully, you gain a few minutes to sit on the couch with your feet up and just take a deep breath. I know life is crazy and we all deserve a moment of peace on the couch to just breathe!
This is such a fun twist on hamburger helper that the family loves!
